Covering one third of the Okavango Delta in Botswana, the Moremi Game Reserve is one of the finest wildlife reserves in Africa.

Moremi is one of the most beautiful Reserves in Africa and at any time of the year, game is prolific

Acacia forest, mopane woodlands, floodplains and lagoons provide a wide diversity of habitats for wildlife which includes elephant, buffalo, giraffe, lion, leopard, cheetah, wild dog, hyena, jackal, red lechwe, sitatunga

Moremi - teeming with African animals

Game viewing reachs its peak from July to October when seasonal pans dry up and the game congregates around the Khwai river, Third Bridge and Xakanaxa lagoon

There are a wide range of habitats in Moremi; from riparian woodlland, floodplain, reed beds, permanent wetland through mopane forest to dry savanna woodland. The circular road system will take you through them all although it will probably he in the floodplains that you will see most animals.

In addition to large herds of buffalo, elephant, giraffe and many species of antelope, one has a good chance of seeing leopard, lion, cheetah and wild dog.

These plains are crowded with impala, red lechwe, zebra, wildebeest, elephant, buffalo, giraffe and warthog grazing on the sweet grasses usually under the gaze of lions

The Reserve is a place of lily-covered wetlands, grass plains and forests, where even at the busiest time of year you're likely to be the only spectators at the most dramatic animal sighting.

As Moremi is a fenced reserve, game viewing is impressive throughout the year.

Moremi consists of a network of waterways surrounding two large islands, Chiefs Island in the west and Mopane Tongue in the east.

This diversity of habitats provides rich pickings for an impressive variety of animals and around 550 bird species

For birding enthusiasts, not only does the woodland offer a wide range of apecies but the chance to drive to the edges of large lagoons which offer fantastic birding. There are many species of ducks end geese, as well as an amazing variety of heron.
